We’re putting Woodland in the spotlight today, beginning with News Network. Jim Smith, editor of the Woodland Daily Democrat joins us from his office to expand on the story of the Yolo County Sheriff in the Wild, Wild West.
On June 27, Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Melissa Manchester will perform a benefit concert at the Woodland Opera House for the Opera House and a musical called “Zuccotti Park,” co-written by singer-songwriter Vatrena King and screenwriter Catherine Hurd. King, who now lives in Winters, toured with Melissa Manchester, Barry Manilow and was a back-up singer on the “Ally McBeal” show.
Former Sacramento Kings player Brian Grant was diagnosed with early-onset Parkinson's disease in 2008. By 2010, he had crated a foundation and is featured in a KVIE documentary called, "Living with Parkinson's." Grant joins Insight via phone along with the film's producer, Karen Christian, and Dr. Suketu Khandhar with Kaiser Permanente. The film premieres Wednesday at 7 p.m.
Jazz Gitan is a northern California acoustic jazz trio specializing in the "hot club" style of jazz made popular in the 30's and 40's combined with some modern Gyspy Jazz influences. The group is having a CD release party for its new album “Djangit” Saturday, June 28 at the Sutter Creek Theater and join us ahead of their concert for a live in-studio performance.
